Ripple jumps on the NFT wagon

XRP Ledger is evolving into an NFT platform. Proponents have noted that the XRP Ledger has features that support NFT functionality. The platform was launched in 2012, and evolving to power NFTs is a key milestone. 

The platform runs on XLS-20, a standard that will power seamless functionality for NFTs. The standard is yet to receive the community’s approval. Once approved, RippleX will support the development of NFTs on its network. 

The payments giant will partner with the Mintable project, the digital item marketplace, to power NFTs. Ripple’s On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) corridor has posted 130% quarter-over-quarter growth. Ripple’s partnerships in Asia have boosted the utility of XRP, and the platform has grown 2400% over a year. 

Ripple’s ODL corridor between Japan and the Philippines is driving the adoption of XRP. 

The volume of daily active addresses is up from 11,300 to 1,42,700. There is over an 11 times increase in the on-chain activity on the XRP network. 

Ethereum’s high transaction fees have negatively impacted NFT developers and users on the network. Transaction fees on XRP Ledger are expected to be much lower than ETH, fueling higher adoption of NFTs. 

Proponents consider that XRP price is at a make or break point. Earlier this week, whales moved $14 million worth of XRP tokens from exchanges. Whale movements are indicative of a trend reversal in XRP price. 

FXStreet analysts believe that XRP price will skyrocket to $2.
